Facilities needed:
Ideally, a PC or Mac with a Web browser, an Internet connection and projection (ie, LCD projector onto a white screen or a white wall). Theater-style seating for the students works well, as does gathering everyone around a conference table and sticking me and the projector at one end. For the workshop, we do NOT need everyone to have a computer. Just me - the students takes notes as they listen to me. If you want to have a special hands-on session, then you need to arrange for several computers and more time.

Handouts:
I typically need about 25% more than the number of people who attend (they usually want to take extra copies for colleagues, friends, family, etc -- you can never have too many).

Please prepare a package of handouts of the following items, in the order below (ie, click on each link and print each one):

For a general session of professionals, please printout and copy each of the following:

  1. Welcome sheet
  2. Links list
  3. Things You Didn't Know Google Does
  4. Sree's bio
  5. "Save This Tip!" Poynter column
  6. Information Overload essay

If you can't do it all, then, at a minumum, do items 1-4; if that's not possible, do 1-3, please.

For a session for parents and/or children:

  1. Welcome sheet
  2. Links list
  3. Keeping Children Safe Online
  4. Things You Didn't Know Google Does
  5. Sree's bio
  6. Information Overload essay

If you can't do it all, then, at a minumum, do items 1-5.)

Put all the printouts together into one package and then copy and staple together... One package per person -- photocopied 2-sided and stapled -- please, making for a multi-sheet handout.

OPTIONAL: If you wish to get feedback please hand this out- workshop evaluation

Many thanks for your help. Please contact me if you have any questions.
